As requested we are going to wander the trails of Niwot and then go enjoy wine (or whatever you choose) at one of the restaurants in town. With the short days near the solstice this seems like a good time for this.
This week we will walk the lollipop loop on the southeast edge of town starting at the Niwot Trailhead, total round trip distance will be about 2.5-3 easy miles. This walk will be followed by beverages/food at Colterra, http://colterra.com/food-and-wine/. We will meet at the Niwot Trailhead on N 79th Street, see the "Map & Directions" tab on the below link.
Here is information on the Niwot trail system - http://www.bouldercounty.org/os/parks/Pages/niwottrails.aspx
Plan on a walking pace of over 2 miles an hour. Bring energy foods, water, snow gear, warm gear, dress in layers, be prepared for changes in weather, hiking poles, a headlamp or flashlight, etc. Be self-sufficient, you are hiking at your own risk.
